"On one of my market days, I happened to find this pair of
well used rubber boots. I wanted to create a strong and bold
design on this one. I found a certain kind of beauty in the
simplicity of their shape and contrast to the sidewalk."

Nice painting... love the abstract design of the forms and the simplicity of the idea.

Hey Diana,
I did several sketches of these boots for the exact reasons you like the piece.
They became simple bold dark shapes that I could contrast against the sidewalk. Just one of those moments that worked out. Thanks for the compliment. Linda
